Big Snake

Thread starter #22
For a watersnake it certainly had the biggest fangs I've ever seen as my buddy could attest to. I grew up here in the south on a river. I know my snakes.

Did you notice its eyes? If so, what was the shape of the pupils?

Not the clearest photo, but based on head shape and girth I agree with the OP that it's a Cottonmouth. As far as size..there's a bit of a forced perspective there. The ol' fisherman's trick of holding the bass out towards the camera which makes a big fish look even bigger.

Yep...very much forced perspective. A six foot moccasin would be pushing record size. Sure is a skinny thing to be a cottonmouth though....
